Don't Look At The Man Behind The Curtain

Rep. Henry A. Waxman has released a comprehensive examination of secrecy in the Bush Administration. I haven't read it yet, but the gist is that:
there has been a consistent pattern in the Administration’s actions: laws that are designed to promote public access to information have been undermined, while laws that authorize the government to withhold information or to operate in secret have repeatedly been expanded. The cumulative result is an unprecedented assault on the principle of open government.
For those who appreciate irony, please reference my previous post on Colin Powell.
